http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2261

If a mod or guide wants to put this in the all things root thread so to keep the threads as clean as possible or put a pin on this thread (lock it in) so it stays up top so not to get lost in the order of things and make easier to find for all b my guest and thx

Almost any of those roms on that page that the link sends u to r ok to run on our phones as long as u flash the mf3 kernal module zip. after u flash ur chosen rom and from what ive read from over there as long as its not a rom with android v.4.3 ie. CM 10.2, GPE 4.3 and so on...its all just trial and error which ones wrk with our phones. Make sure u read all the information given to u on any rom, dont skip something cause u may not think it applies cause thats usually where problems arise. But as for I...the only roms ive tried have booted up and run for me; gravitron, deadly venom, clean rom gpe 4.2.2, & darthstalker... I stopped at the last one because im really diggin the phone with that rom. I hope this helps and again sorry 4 takin so long to get back to u I just get busy sometimes dealing with the wife and kids...u know, they always gotta b entertained...lolol )) good luck in ur ventures and happy flashing

Did u flash the rom in the safestrap recovery which is the TWRP recovery and not the stock recovery which has what looks like a android lieing on its back with its stomach/chest flap opened...if u installed the safestrap apk on ur phone and installed the recovery that it gives u through the app u shouldve been able to press the reboot recovery option in the app and it will have taken u to the twrp recovery where u can either select 1 of the 4 slots to put a rom on or go back to the stock slot in case the rom u want to flash doesnt work as long as u didnt flash over the stock slot...sorry for the delayed response had to work and im in the process of moving and just got a min to relax...but I will try to stay on here more to c if I can help u out

Try booting into download mode (Hold vol down, home button, and power button. As soon as u feel the phone vibrate let go of the power button) and try again if u didnt already
